Exploring the response of lattices to eddy currents

It is now well documented that eddy currents can significantly contribute to the QC and NDT of additively manufactured parts, either during the process or in post processing. To fully deploy its potential, the technique has to demonstrate its value for low density structures such as lattices, which are now commonly manufactured with PBF-LB.

FieldMade visit to AMiquam

Had a great meeting yesterday discussing the future of quality control and monitoring in metal additive manufacturing with our colleagues from Fieldmade AS, armasuisse Wissenschaft und Technologie, and HES-SO Valais-Wallis. The AMiquam team presented a new design of the in situ NDT/monitoring system installed in a Nikon SLM Solutions machine. Based on this design, the…

AMiquam to contribute to the Joint ISO ASTM board for standardisation of additive manufacturing

Glad to participate again to these working groups creating the future standards of our industry.

Paper published about the influence of temperature on insitu eddy currents measurements

This paper describes and analyses the impact of the temperature on the insitu eddy current measurements during PBF-LB manufacturing. The research has been conducted by AMiquam, ETHZ, and inspire in a partnership supported by Innosuisse. In a nutshell: yes, as expected, temperature affects the eddy current response because of the change in the electrical conductivity…

Machine learning applied to Eddy Current data collected during LPBF manufacturing

In the frame of a partnership with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO), a paper has been recently published on the application of machine learning to detect process degradation during the LPBF process monitored with Eddy Current sensors. The empirical approach is achieved by setting up a trained AI algorithm for…
